Olive rushes over to show Popeye the headline: Vaudeville is coming back. They agree to rehearse their old act. After a brief song-and-dance intro, the act begins: Popeye demonstrating his strength while Olive displays her flexibility and balance; impersonations of Jimmy Durante, Stan Laurel, and Groucho Marx; and the last act, more feats of strength and agility.Written by

A good many cartoons used caricatures of actual stars of the time. Popeye does three impressions: Stan Laurel, Jimmy Durante, and Groucho Marx. He also does a crazy act where he spins Olive like a baton. It turns out they were an act in the past. I guess that was created just so they could revive their talents. It's not bad. I just doesn't go anywhere.
